Leonard Hernandez

Tonight we voted to offer the Timberland Library executive director position to Leonard Hernandez, who is currently serving in the same role in Riverside, CA.

The vote was 3-2, myself, Bob Hall and Judy Weaver voting in the affirmative and Edna Fund and John Braun against. Stephen Hardy a Tom Schaefer were absent from the meeting.

Edna’s and John’s votes weren’t against Leonard. To contrary, I think both of them were as impressed with Leonard as I was or anyone else on the board. As John said after the vote, his concern was with the particular package we put together, and I have a lot of respect for both his and Edna’s opinion in that regard.

For those interested, the package is as follows:

  • $140,000 in salary (our range went as high as $150,000)
  • $8,500 annual car allowance.
  • A relocation allowance up to $10,000
  • 4 weeks vacation, 2 personal days and 5 extra days executive director personal days
  • Medical, dental, vision, long-term disability, and life insurance for employee paid by employer.

I have other notes from the meeting, which I’ll write up hopefully tomorrow. But, that’s the big news I think everyone was wondering about.

    Emmett, thank you so much for your blog. And thank you for keeping the public and staff of TRL informed as to what is going on. You don’t know how much we appreciate that. Here’s to hoping Leonard says yes!
